Gilmore Girls: Stop This Ride, I Wanna Get Off

SPOILER ALERT: Don't read unless you've watched up through Episode 9 of Season 7 on Gilmore Girls!

Some of you may know that I've been watching Gilmore Girls - at Tracey's request - for the past 6 weeks. 6 Weeks, 141 Episodes down and 13 Episodes to go before the revival.

I am finally on Season 7, about to start Episode 10.

And I have some things to say.


Lorelai, I don't know WHAT the eff made you marry Chris...but it was not a smart move. At all. And you KNEW it wasn't a good move while you were sitting across the table wolfing down steak at 6AM. It wasn't even like you were soooo out of your mind in love with him as you gazed at the Eiffel tower that you immediately grabbed a minister;  Chris was a total bully nudge about the whole thing...and you let him talk you into it!!!! SINCE WHEN DO YOU LET HIM TALK YOU INTO MARRIAGE???

And now here she is, parading him around town as her husband (OK not really parading, more like hiding in plain sight LOL) and poor Luke...POOR LUKE has to deal with it. And don't get me wrong, I HATED LUKE for postponing the wedding and putting her off. I did. I was so mad at him. But then when he showed up and wanted to marry her and was ready to do it and she...she...UGHHHHHH I can't even think about it.

Turn around.
Listen, sister...LUKE is who you belong with. LUKE has been like a FATHER to Rory all these years; not Chris. LUKE has made a life - alongside you - in Stars Hollow all these years. LUKE cares. LUKE gets you. LUKE is your life...already.

And don't get me wrong; I actually like Chris! This show has me so crazy because I don't even know what I'm saying! I've always had a soft spot for Chris and the fact that he's tried really hard to be in Lorelai and Rory's lives. BUT...

I can only pray she and Chris break up and this revival involves all kinds of Luke-and-Laura-Lorelai love.

And PS - Logan needs to go. GO!!! Rory's right; he's a spoiled trust fund kid. And LOGAN WAS RIGHT; SO IS RORY! The whole storyline makes me sick. It was bad enough when he was playing house with Daddy's money ("Oh Rory, I've paid for the apartment for a year." NO YOU HAVEN'T YOU ASS; YOUR DAD DID!) but now we've got Rory being all Mary Tyler Moore at the paper. OH no, wait, she left the paper. Now she's just playing the victim with Naked Drunk Guy, who is dating her friend. Blorrrrttt. It's really annoying.

Oh and you know what? While I'm at it...BRING DEAN BACK!!! BOY, how I miss Dean!! Hell, for that matter, I'd even take JESS! 😱

The only thing getting me through this show is Paris. Paris and Doyle. Holy shite, they are so damned funny, I don't know what to do with myself. (I'd post a video of them dirty dancing, but that would involve me Googling, and I canNOT subject myself to spoilers this late in the game.)

Oh EFF IT! I couldn't resist! How funny is this???

OK that's it for me. More later. I'm watching 3 more eps tonight, and I'm sure I'll have plenty more to say about the HOT MESS that is Season 7 of Gilmore Girls.

Winter's Tale: Filmed at Lyndhurst Mansion

Lyndhurst Castle - Tarrytown, NY
I stumbled upon this trailer for the film, Winter's Tale when I was reading about the Lyndhurst Mansion in Sleepy Hollow, NY. I'm visiting the house ("house" is an understatement) in a couple of weeks when it turns into "Jay Ghoul's House of Curiosities" for the spooky Halloween season. Little did I know, however that a good amount of the movie was filmed there.

How is it possible that I - the sappiest Romantic of all time - have never heard of this book or seen this film??

Making a Murderer: WTF??????

SPOILER ALERT: I am 2/3rds of the way through episode 7 of Making a Murderer. 

I have been watching Making a Murderer on Netflix all week and was about to explode if I didn't get this out.

Are these prosecutors out of their ever loving minds?  This is the most horrifically hilarious (or hilariously horrific?) high profile case since OJ and AJ Cowlings were on the phone with LAPD while driving down the 5. The absolute BEST part of this shitshow - and what prompted me to post about it - was the prosecution talking to the audience (or in this case, the jury) like they're 2 year olds while questioning the FBI's expert on EDTA. "OK now you lovely jury...the nice man up on the stand is going to talk to us about evidence! Yey!!!" I mean give me a BREAK - this is Broadway at its finest. I feel like I'm watching Inherit the Wind II: Fun with Blood Samples and DNA. They're literally you would when trying to get your point across to a toddler about making sure his crusts are cut off.

I am sorry - but I've sat through almost 7 full episodes and if Steven Avery isn't innocent, there is sure as shit something ELSE going on here. WHERE IS THE BLOOD IN THE HOUSE????  WHERE IS THE DNA IN THE HOUSE???  And they went back MONTHS LATER and HAPPENED UPON about four zillion bullets in the garage???  And WHERE ARE THE BLOOD SPATTERS IN THE GARAGE?? And for the love of all that's holy - THERE'S A HOLE IN THE offing BLOOD VILE STOPPER and all the TAPE HAS BEEN CUT AROUND THE BOX.

This would be COMICAL if it wasn't so outrageous.  And sad.  Very, very sad.

More later...
